Stair lifts for seniors: Everything you need to know

While a stair chair lift is a great choice for any home where added convenience and safety is desired, they are essential in helping the elderly remain independent in their own homes. Check out our most frequently asked questions about stair lifts for the elderly:

  • Will Medicare or my health insurance pay for the stair lift?
    While each situation is different, stair lifts and other home modifications are not typically a covered expense. However, there are many alternatives such as national funding sources or local / Connecticut funding sources.
  • Should we buy new, buy used, or rent a stair lift? Ultimately, this decision comes down to a few factors, including your budget, physical condition, desired options, staircase design, and whether the stair lift is for long-term or short-term use. See our blog post on this topic for more in-depth information.
  • Will we need multiple stair chair lifts installed?
    It depends. If the home has only a single staircase, only one stair lift is needed. In homes with multiple landings, it may be less expensive to install 2 or more straight stair lifts than a custom curved one. You may also want to consider installing additional stair lifts for an elderly loved one with multi-level outdoor spaces.
  • Are stair lifts for seniors difficult to operate?
    No. Although there are many models on the market, each with optional features, stair lifts are universally designed for smooth, safe, and simple operation by people of all ages. And when your stair lift is installed by a Lifeway expert, we take the time to train all members of your household on its use and maintenance. Want to test one out before you buy? Just make an appointment at the Lifeway showroom nearest you!
  • Will A Stairlift Fit on my Staircase?
    Yes, Stair Lifts Fit Most Staircases
    A staircase needs to be a minimum of 32″ wide to fit a stair lift. The track is mounted on the stair treads, not on the wall, and will extend out from the wall between 6 to 9 inches.
    The chair lift’s seat, arms, and footrest will fold up when the lift is not in use. Folded up, stairlifts will extend from 11 to 16 inches from the wall.
    The track on a straight or curved model does extend beyond the bottom of the staircase which, in some cases, can be a problem. A manual or electric folding rail will allow the track to fold up and out of the way when the lift is not in use.
